Effects of noise and language exposure on speech intelligibility performance
Keywords:Acoustic noise, Acoustics, Audition, Speech, Language exposure effects, Speech perception
AbstractThe present study provides clear evidence that non-native listeners operate at a moderate to large disadvantage to native listeners even after many years of intensive experience with the English language. However, the disadvantage is seen most clearly under favourable listening conditions, not under degraded conditions. Furthermore, examination of the details of the confusion responses of Korean listeners shows that the two-alternative forced choice paradigm fails to characterize /r/-/l/ perception for non-native listeners.
